Incidents like this, which are not uncommon and happen across the country virtually daily, remind us of the need to prepare for possible emergency situations, such as a hazardous chemical fire, spill/release or explosion. The LEPC, local hazmat organization and local industries that use/store/produce/transport hazardous chemicals should investigate the acquisition and use of commercially available technologies (specialized software and hardware) that specifically address chemical releases and allow emergency management and response personnel to plan for, detect and more effectively respond to a real chemical emergency. But buyer beware. Some technologies may not live up to their sales hype. Two good articles to read are Chemical Emergencies: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow published in EHS Today, a Penton Media publication, Feb 1, 2010 and 10 Things You Should Know Before Buying Hazmat/Chemical Emergency Technologies, written by Chris Cowles and also published in EHS Today by Penton Media November 30, 2011. Both articles are posted on the EHS Today website.
